Compaq Mini CQ10 and HP Mini 210 HD netbooks break cover

January 3, 2010 at 2:03 pm

Compaq Mini CQ10Two new netbooks have been spotted at an online retailer, presumably ahead of the official CES announcement next week. The 10.1-inch HP Mini 210 HD appears to be exactly the same as the rumoured Mini 210 albeit with Broadcom’s Crystal HD video accelerator. It has been spotted at US retailer Logic Buy for $330, with a release date expected next week.

The rest of the specs are the same as the HP Mini 210. It is powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Pineview Atom, GMA 3150 graphics, 1GB RAM, up to a 250GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter. Other features include Wi-Fi (b/g), a 5-in-1 card reader, webcam and 6-cell battery.

The HP Mini 210 has already been spotted at retail in Costco, Oregon for $350. This is ahead of the $280 listed price on Logic Buy. Pricing is likely to be cleared up in the next few days when it is officially announced. It will be available in red, black, silver and blue.

Lastly, we have the Compaq Mini CQ10. This 10.1-inch netbook seems to be identical in specifications to the HP Mini 210 but will cost $260. I’m sure the differences will be outlined when it is formally announced next week.

    I bought a compaq mini computer in Mazatlan at Walmart. I had to get
    it programed in English. No instructions came with it. I guess it woudlnt
    matter because I cant read Spanish. What my problem is that the mouse pad
    will start scrolling up or down at anytime. I dont know how to change this.
    Please help as it is frustrating.
    Thanking you in advance..

    I was just wondering, due to the speed of the compaq mini

    is it possible to switch out the RAM chip for a 2GB ddr2 or a 4GB ddr2???

    thanks so much
